My husband and I used to be
My husband and I used to be very good, frequent customers of Benny's many years ago, then for some reason we stopped going.Other places closer to our home opened and we literally forgot about Benny's! Looking for a place to catch dinner before a NorthFork Theater show on Saturday night we rediscovered Benny's and happily found it to be just as wonderful as always. The food was fresh and delicious, the service impeccable. We both had fish dishes, mine branzino, his red snapper and they were both cooked perfectly and scrumptious! We will remember in the future to go to Benny's for a special occasion, or just a romantic night out !

My experience at Benny's was a memorable one. Being greeted by co-owners Lisa and her brother makes you feel like your having a special meal with family. The pasta special was homemade and the fish was delicious (Swordfish and Sea Scallops). This was my first time eating there and my mother in law and I were beyond impressed. This restaurant has been around for 26 years and I'm not surprised. We plan on coming back again in the very near future.

After reading a glowing review
After reading a glowing review in a local newspaper we decided to try this venerable restaurant. It was terrific! The service was most attentive, got to meet Benny and his daughter and son and had a great meal. We will be returning soon. Do not hesitate to try this place if you never been before.

A MEMORABLE LUNCH
We were a group of six and not one of us was disappointed. Our waiter was fabulous and was so helpful in our selection of all courses! Calamari, Broccoli Floret, Benny's Rollatini, Pan Seared Scallops, Rigatoni Pugliese, Chicken Gismonda,and a Veal Special. We wanted to have it set up in a "tasting manner". Our waiter made a suggestion to "trust him" in setting up these dishes for all of us to experience; we did. Needless to say, he had the kitchen arrange our dishes where we all had a sampling of everything! The food was fabulous. If I was a person like Peter Giannoti, I would give Benny's 5 CHEF HATS.

A great place for traditional
A great place for traditional Italian food with a nice touch of the exotic in some of the dishes. They do many things you may have heard of or had in other restuarants but they manage to do them better and with their own personal touch. Will always leave there and feel you were appreciated and treated with great respect Gary.

What a very pleasant surprise this was. We just loved everything about Benny's including Benny.

We were seated inn what they call the wine cellar, a little dingy, but intimate. I thought we would be so out of the way that service would be minimal, however they never forgot us and the service was exceptional. The food was very tasty and hot. The only drawback in this room was when they had to roll a large table through it. We used our smartphone for music and it was quieter than the rest of the restaurant. Definitely worth a return trip.

We have been meaning to go to Benny's for quite some time so we finally did this past Saturday night. Overall, it was a good experience. The food was consistently good however there was nothing that caused any of us a "wow" reaction. It was "Saturday night crowded" so the service was good but not consistent. I would go back again as in all, it was above average in all respects.

Still one of my favorites
We hadn't been to Benny's in a while. We were happy to see some of the same waiters. We had the burata with tomato. It was creamy and delicious. Next we had linguine with tiny clams and hot sausage. It was excellent! We finished with a special request, steak Diane which is prepared table side. It was an item that used to be on the menu. As it was the Saturday before Mother's Day and the restaurant was busy, we were very happy that they could accommodate us. We were celebrating my husbands birthday.
Benny came out of the kitchen and came around to all of the tables. All in all an excellent meal in a first class restaurant with a first class owner and staff.

Very Good but Oldish
Very good food and service but a little too old Italian for me and a little too dark and somber on the inside. Worth going back for another meal though and just concentrate on the food.
5/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Amazing food, great service me and my family had a grea time.

11 for Dinner
We were 11 people and we asked for a round table and got exactly what we needed. The service was smooth but was a little slow. However, overall the experience was excellent.

Fine Italian Cuisine in Westbury
Benny was an excellent host circling the tables ensuring all was well!
Mussels were outstanding. The veal pillows were superb as were the braised short ribs. The zabaglione was sinfully delicious!!!

So close to home and so good!
This family run restaurant always strives to please the customer - and they never fail. Food and service is always great. Menu specials are inventive and always a good choice. A great place for having a wonderful dinner with friends!

We had our son's graduation party here and the service and food were great. It was a Tuesday evening, the restaurant was empty by the time we were done and we were never rushed. I would say the food leans more to Central Italy, with some Northern and Southern dishes, all very good. The service was warm and reminicent of traditional fine Italian service.
5/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best Frutti de Mare and homemade
Best Frutti de Mare and homemade pasta I have ever had. And, having zucchini leaves is an amazing treat! Having Benny walking around checking in on us is a great feature too. What a wonderful meal!

All around good
Was a very pleasant experience.Good was excellent, service was very attentive and the entire staff was friendly and helpful. Would diffidently recommend for a nice night of good food, atmosphere and service without having to go into the city.

Chose this restaurant for a reunion dinner to reminisce about our trip to Italy! Felt like we were right back there..Wine list was nice, our waiter recommended two very good bottles. Menu was exactly what we were looking for..Authentic Italian food made fresh! The braciole w/ gnocci was magnificient. Restaurant was crowded and every dish that came out of the kitchen looked better than the next. My husband enjoyed a veal chop which he declared was the best he has ever had! The icing on the cake was the homemade limoncello they served complimentary. Benny, the owner visited our table and told us about growing up in Sicily. A definite must for foodies looking for an authentic Italian meal..Well worth the money.....

Our group of four are experienced restaurant diners were happy to have read a review about Benny's that showed a four star rating and we all found it to live up to that rating. Each part of the meal was perfection and we were allowed to eat at our pace. While Benny's has been around for many years, it was our first time but it won't be our last and we traveled over 30 miles.
6/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
The service, food, friendliness of the the owners cannot be compared to anywhere else. They truly take an interest in how their customers' are enjoying their dinners. The specials are always mouthwatering and prepared perfectly. Presentation is also spectacular. Keep up the good work, Benny and family!!!!

The girls from work decided to take some time off . We went to Bennys to see a (Psyc Medium ) and ended up not only being entertained but having a all around womderful night out. There was great food great wine and great staff. The service was awsom and the food was served hot and had beautiful presentation with each dish served. There wasn't a bad complaint in the room. Thanks Bennys I'm totally hooked !

Benny's has, over the years, been consistently excellent. Food and service are both as good or better than any fine Manhattan restaurant. Benny is always there, supervising and saying hello.

I always feel welcome when I go here. The food and the service is great. It is a very pleasant atmosphere.

I haven't been back to Benny's for a while but I was happy to see it had been finally renovated and most important the food was just as good as I remembered. Fresh and delicious with nice presentations. Fried and stuffed zucchini flowers were awesome as was the Chilean sea bass. Veal chop valdonsano was amazing as well. Run of the mil pasta with tomatoe sauce was a little disappointing. But since they were closing for two weeks the next day maybe it was a bit overlooked. Service remained excellent as well as friendly management. Moderately pricey but all in all a great night.

Westbury favorite for locals
My wife and I were in town for a concert. We found Bennys on TripAdvisor and enjoyed the experience. Benny was on duty and worked the Dining Room stopping at all the tables. There seemed to be many "regulars" there. The service was very good. They used a front / back waiter system and it worked well. There was one server who could have used a good cleaning of his uniform as it was soiled and when he poured our bottle of wine he used his hand to wipe the drip from the bottle, they did have nice cotton napkins? They were closing for two weeks so were out of Carpaccio , which we were looking forward to and Mussels were also out. Next time I would have had the fresh strawberries with Sabayon made in the dining room however not table side???

Great Food and Terrific service
Not the most modern decor but the food is fantastic and the service is the finest. Add to this the family's personal touch. Both son and daughter of Benny came many times to the table not only to ask about the food but to introduce themselves and chat (if you wanted). Introduced the first time because of restaurant week, because of the reviews and had to come back.

This is a reasonably priced
This is a reasonably priced restaurant, that gives you a great restaurant experience. The food was excellent. Wish I could give 5 stars, but my fish was good but not excellent. The other dishes were excellent. The service was so-so, but there was a table for 26 next to us.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent Old Style Service
Great food, interesting menu but what sets Benny's apart from teh crowd is the wonderful service. Anything to please the customer from special orders to teh kitchen to no rushing, not on the clock so that next group may be seated. The staff is sincere in providing you with the best experience. Go and enjoy
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We live about 40 miles from Benny's in Westbury but make it a point to go there at least 4 to 5 times a year. The food is excellent with a variety of salads, appetizers, entree's, and specials, you can always find something. Service is always good and we were welcomed as friends usually by Benny himself. We dined with friends from Pelham who traveled to meet us and they really enjoyed the food and restaurant overall. At the end of the meal they bring a glass of homemade Lemonjello for everyone at the table which finishes the night off just right. Great Place to meet friends or go with a date or significant other.
